Convince us to read the book: When seven teenagers are trapped in their suburban high school by the worst blizzard of the century, they are forced to abandon everything they know about rules as the likelihood of survival dwindles.
Memorable or Forgettable: This book is a frightening reminder that nature isn't the nurturing mother we remember from Bambi. Sometimes, bad things happen, and this fast-paced, action book is a realistic, refreshing take on the tried and true "Teens in over their heads"-survival genre popularized by Gary Paulson's Hatchet. It's a fresh, modern book with enough danger and suspense to draw in fans of more conventional "action" books like The Hunger Games.
Cover: This book has a great cover, and the design of the interior pages is a stroke of pure genius. Whoever put this together deserves a medal.
